I write this with a little tear in my eye but also a swell in my heart knowing that we’re in the final countdown of The Kate & Mike Show. Thank you if you reached out to tell us you’re going to miss the show. We’re going to miss it, too…and we’re also SO excited for the new possibilities that ending it will bring. (More on that in the weeks to come.)
We’ve talked about doing a show where we get to answer your questions for the last 4 years. I know you know how it goes: You think about doing something and then never get around to doing it until the very last minute.
(That’s actually my creative process with everything. I’ve learned to not label it procrastination but just the way I work. The energy I’ve saved beating myself up about it has been amazing to reinvest in things that actually pay dividends…like just doing my work instead of judging myself for the way I do it.)
We thought it would be really fun to find out what was on your mind and do an “Ask Us Anything” show, and I gotta tell you:
I was really surprised to find out what you wanted to know more about!
We went a lot of places in this episode, and I know you’re going to get some key takeaways.
We talked about:
The story of how Mike proposed (and what really surprised me about it even though I knew he was going to do it)
How to successfully pitch guests to be on your podcast and how to conduct a memorable interview
Our biggest parenting triumphs this year
Our biggest business mistake to date
And so much more!
Plus, we had more questions than we could answer in one session, so we’ll be putting out a second bonus Part 2 “Ask Us Anything” episode in the coming weeks. If you don’t hear your question answered, stay tuned!
